Epic Book 2
By Lee Stephen
Not all wars are waged on the field...
This is the second book in the Epic series and believe me when I tell you that this book won't disappoint. Unlike the first book Dawn of Destiny (reviewed here) which took place over a longer period of time, Outlaw Trigger takes place over a 2-1/2 week period with the bulk of the story taking place over a 7 day period. Seven days that will redefine Scott Remington and the Fourteenth of Novosibirsk.
Novosibirsk has rebuilt much that was destroyed or damaged in the attack (Dawn of Destiny). Replacement troops from EDEN are slowly coming in to Novosibirsk. And then there are the Nightmen.
Outlaw Trigger has three different threads weaving throughout the story. First is the Fourteenth and Scott Remington who are about to face one of their greatest challenges. A challenge not on the battleground but one of the mind. A challenge that could very well break them and divide them forever.
The second thread involves the Nightmen. A formidable force, that no one messes with. The true power behind Novosibirsk lies with the Nightmen, and what the Nightmen want the Nightmen get. And they want one thing, and someone is about to find out just how high the price is.
The third thread is EDEN's High Command the politicians who are behind the scenes and yet the force who is over all of EDEN's bases. But Novosibirsk has again been brought to their attention due to the power General Ignatius van Thoor is wielding. Power that is threatening that of the High Command. Power that could threaten Earth's security and humanity's fight against the alien invaders who have attacked us.
These three threads make for an intriguing and exciting story. A story of loss, grief, anger, and regret. A story that will leave you shocked at the lengthens some will go to to achieve their ultimate goal. And no cost is too high, unless you are the one paying the cost...
I was provided a copy of this book through iRead Book tours in exchange for my honest review and tour participation.
About Outlaw Trigger:
They say every man has a breaking point-every man can be pushed off the edge. Scott Remington entered EDEN with the heart of a lion. He forged glory in the furnace of war. But on the heels of dawn, darkness awaits. Only when stretched to the limit will a man truly learn who he is. That limit is about to be breached. Lines will be crossed. Sides will be chosen. And faith will be put to the test. Will the righteous prevail?
Born and raised in Cajun country, Lee Stephen spent his childhood paddling pirogues through the marshes of South Louisiana. When he wasn’t catching bullfrogs or playing with alligators in the bathtub (both true), he was escaping to the world of the imagination, creating worlds in his mind filled with strange creatures and epic journeys. This hasn’t stopped.
Now a resident of Luling, Louisiana, Lee spends time every day delving into the world of Epic, the science-fiction series that has come to define him as a writer and producer. Alongside his wife, Lindsey, their sons, Levi and Lawson, and their dog, Jake, Lee has made it a mission to create a series that is unique in its genre—one unafraid to address the human condition while staying grounded in elements of faith.
